Chained Rock Trail

Pine Mountain State Resort Park

Pineville, Kentucky


Chained Rock was officially fastened to the adjacent cliff in the summer of 1933; allegedly to protect the city of Pineville from calamity should the ominous boulder perched precariously above town become loosened. There is an excellent panoramic view of Pineville, present day Highway 25E (formerly the Wilderness Road) and the surrounding mountain terrain. On clear days, the prominent ridge of Cumberland Mountain is visible 12 miles to the south.
